New ACC TV deal: cha-ching


As you doubtlessly already know, commish John Swofford brought home the proverbial bacon to the ACC, striking a 12-year TV deal with ESPN.  Some highlights of the deal include more broadcasts of non-revenue sports, like baseball and soccer, all basketball games carried on ESPN (whether through TV or ESPN3), but most of all, lots more money for its members.

It is being reported that ACC schools stand to make about $12 million each, more than double the $5.6 million they make now.  I suspect ACC fans will be pleased with the news, as their athletic departments will be cashing in and many more ACC games will be broadcast in a variety of different sports.
